LYRIC poetry, CONTEXTUAL analysis, HISPANIC American poetry (Spanish), HISPANIC American literature (Spanish), and HISTORY & criticism
Pablo Neruda's Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair (1942) is one of the cardinal books of Spanish American lyric sociability and sentimental education. Though this work has been widely scrutinized and examined -turned from document into "monument"- both its generative process and sociocritical correlative context have not been sufficiently pondered in order to tackle the mechanisms and procedures that co-construct its second published edition by the poet. From bio-bibliographical, critical, and historical references, this article attemps to synthetically explore the textual, aesthetic and sociocultural strategies articulated in Twenty Love Poems' manufacture, proposing an interpretation that emphasizes the author's self-critical exhaustivety, and the paradoxes of this work's valuation, especially considering its reception in Chile.

POETRY (Literary form), CRITICISM, ARTICLES (Published materials), INTERVIEWING, and ESSAYS
Volodia Teitelboim, one of the most important literary and political figures of the 20th Century in Chile, learned about Neruda's work early on in his life. His appreciation of it, which is not free of controversy, fluctuates between total initial admiration, and some rejection later on. Teiltelboim's appraisal of Neruda's work changed over time, but he eventually reappraised the poet's work. These changes are registered in a series of articles and interviews published in different media over the years. This essay intends to shed some light on Teitelboim's critical view on Neruda's work by reviewing these publications. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
